I just started reading a book about RDI. Sounds interesting so far. Does anyone here have experience with RDI they can share?

RDI stands for Relationship Development Intervention. The general idea (again I am just learning) is that development in ASD is slower and in many cases deficient in dynamic learning. And the best way to support this is through relationship models, either with an RDI consultant who trains the parents, or an RDI therapist where the parent is involved.

This is new to me!! With two kiddos on the spectrum and a principal of an elementary school I'm always open to new research on the field. Thanks for sharing!

We never did formal RDI but used some principles and did the activities listed. Mostly we learnt that child lead stuff works for E!

I used RDI (just read and watched videos and tried out things) and LOVE IT! I absolutely love the approach and think it helped my son tremendously! I reccomend not only "The RDI Book" (which explains the concepts) but also "Relationship Development Activities for Young children" and looking up some of the parent posted videos with therapist reviews on youtube. :) good luck!
